History of the Salvation Army

Original footage of

The Salvation Army's Founder, William Booth, in America

with a recording of his famous speech, "I'll Fight".

Mabel Vivian Broome

In 1915, the first African-American officer was commissioned in Chicago. Mable Broome not only led the charge to demolish the color line, she reinforced the Army’s commitment to give leadership roles to any Christian regardless of gender. In honor of Black History Month, please read the story of Ms. Broome, called with much affection one of Chicago’s “slum sisters.”
